in CS6 - How to line up 2 different frames from same shot, and 2 slightly different angles?
on Jan 29, 2015 at 11:26:58 am

I have 2 frames from the same shot, but at 2 different times. One shot has a masked out "hole" in it where an actress stood. I am using the other frame to "fill in" the hole, but the angle is slightly different as the camera was handheld but pointed in one direction (so it's just slightly off, but noticeable)

I used a 3D camera tracker on the layer with a hole in it, and now I'm fiddling with the 2nd layer (the X, Y, & Z rotation values) to try to line up the perspective... am I going about this the right way? Is there an easier way?

Thanks all!

Sorry, but this is going to be very difficult to ascertain without screen shots of the problem at hand. Depending on the amount of movement, there may be different strategies to use.

Keep this in mind, too: an auto-iris on that hand-held camera can really mess up any attempts to fill the hole. You wouldn't have just position, scale and perspective to deal with -- which could be bad enough -- but exposure, which is a totally different kettle of fish.
